History:
Olaf purchased the car mid of 2006 from Björn Schewe, who found it while searching for a new garage. The former owner wanted to put the body on a late model IRS chassis with a type 4 engine. Due to addition to the family and job change he couldn´t finish his plans. The car was stored for 20 years deregistered and disassembled. During the following restoration the car was welded at typical sections, repainted, dechromed, converted to 12V system and supplied with a Rancho tranny. It debuted at the MCM 2008 in Hannover, Germany.
